Doctor's Appointment today...

So I just returned from my doctor's appointment and I am still only 3 cm dilated but 80% effaced!? My due date is on Sunday but the doctor did suggest I go ahead and set-up a date to be induced if I wanted. So...since my son was 8 lbs. 9 oz. & the doc thinks this one is already pretty big, we're going to go ahead and schedule Monday to be induced. I had a very rough recovery with my son so I really want to avoid any complications this time round.
So we are calling the hospital tomorrow and hope to get a date for Monday!
Thanks for all your support and comments :-)

Maybe the baby will come before then - you never know. Here's hoping for an easy L&D and recovery. I'll send up a few prayers for you tonight that it all goes smoothly!

Wow, Margie!!! You know, the day I went into labor, I was actually induced, but I was already contracting (not regularly, though... wah!) I was exactly that, 3CM and 80%! That's so cool! Your little one is going to be here, soon! If I were you, I'd try waiting it out. Induction sucks!

Good luck!

I guess yelling, "Get the hell out!" doesn't work, does it?
